WordPress Security

Every day, some scary article or Facebook post about a major site being hacked or a sensitive database being compromised hits the web and everyone is code red. Did you know that Google blacklists over 6,000 malware-infected websites a day? Consider the ramifications of your website being blacklisted tomorrow. Might hinder your traffic a bit, no? Securing your WordPress site is one of the most critical aspects of starting your online presence and growing it to the next level. As your site becomes more popular and garners the attention of new consumers, it also becomes a more attractive target for hackers and people who are up to no good. While there is no silver bullet when it comes to securing a site, there are several things that can be done to make it less likely that your site will be compromised. When I first launched Keekee360design.com some 6 years ago, I couldn’t have told you the difference between DDOS and Mike Doss. I was among the ranks of those who used the same password for all my accounts … and my bank account … and, you get the idea. Over time, I have learned the importance of taking security seriously.… Read More»

Logo Anatomy

Designing a logo for your business can often be a challenging task – involving time, resources and internal debate. A good logo sets the stage for your company’s visual brand for years to come. Your logo is the foundation of your brand. Your logo’s design not only influences how your customers (and the rest of the world) perceive your brand—it also dictates the colors, fonts, and graphics that will be used in your marketing materials. From email signatures all the way up to your website, your logo design holds power. So what is a Logo? Your logo is a symbol, sign, wordmark or emblem. Logos tend to be graphical in nature, designed for easy recognition of an organization across different mediums. What is Brand? A brand is the idea or image of a specific product or service that consumers connect with, by identifying the name, logo, slogan, or design of the company. Branding is when that idea or image is marketed so that it is recognizable by more and more people, and identified with a certain service or product when there are many other companies offering the same service or product. Simply, your brand is the emotional and psychological relationship… Read More»

How to get away with Branding

logo design, web design , website deisgn, social media management, website maintence, website hack repair, SEO, grapgic design , huntsville, al , ga, tn. miss, huntsville

Branding is the process of aligning the opinions people hold about your brand with the set of thoughts you want them to believe and trust. Apple has done an excellent job of branding its’ company and changing the rules along the way. Apple blew up the rules of branding because Steve Jobs simply didn’t follow the traditional rules, and he never did what he was supposed to do. He knew that someone else’s success wouldn’t be his own, because it’s a fact that imitating others has never resulted in great successes. It’s just great flattery. The rules that criminal-law professor Annalise Keating tells her students to follow if they want to win a case on the hit TV show, How to get away with murder is: Discredit the witness. Find a new suspect. Bury the evidence. Through the television series there are several lessons learned by the student. In this article, we will take the same approach; so pay attention. At the end of the quarter, a grade will be given and it will be measured by the implementation of these rules and the success of your brand. Trust the witness Good branding starts with people aka your witness. People… Read More»

Brand Identity for Stockholm 2026 Olympic Games

Brand Identity for Stockholm 2026 Olympic Games abduzeedo Mar 12, 2018 Hannah Decker published a super cool brand identity project on her Behance profile. It’s actually not a new post, it’s from last year, but for some algorithmic related reasons I just learned about it yesterday. It’s better now than ever, and that’s because it’s awesome. The project is a concept, I believe, for the  Stockholm Sweden 2026 Olympic Games and it’s the full brand identity. The best part for me is that it has a more minimal and simple visual language. Most of the Olympic games identities are full of colors, gradients or organic shapes, this one feels more aligned with the Swedish style. Check out the full project below and also make sure to check out Hannah Decker portfolio at https://www.behance.net/hannahdecker Brand Identity brand identity

How Criminal Background Checks can Impact the Image of Your Company

Hiring and recruiting costs a lot of time and money and there is always some risk involved. Criminal background checks may seem like a normal thing to recruiters and staffing agencies, but larger companies may not understand that this is a crucial way to protect data. If you don’t take extra steps to ensure transparency and trust from the get-go—your company could end up in hot water. If a company is sloppy about their background checks and something messes up, they could be sued for discrimination or negligence. Beyond that, bad hires are costly to organizations of all types and through every industry. Lost time and expenses can occur for various reasons, not the least of which via bad press and even word of mouth information. What can happen if you do not run a criminal background check? If you do not run a background check you face many possible negative consequences. You may be ending up with a person with fake credentials and therefore is, at best, unable to complete the requirements of the job. According to CareerBuilder, a whopping 58% of resumes have some sort of false information. You may also end up with someone who is likely to… Read More»
